At Woodendot they create furniture, accessories and lighting products using wood as the main material; a material that brings our dreams to life. They combine the know-how of master wood craftsmen with the most innovative proposals from designers. The result is a product with its own identity, the warmth of wood; a product that can respond to new needs while looking to the future thanks to its timeless nature. Everything they do at Woodendot seeks to always look after what they love, nature! Live design! This is their mantra, a mantra that connects all their values. Their products are designed to live in harmony with people, creating warm, distinctive, timeless spaces.
